The continuous stress and degradation of the climate in recent years with the population gathering at the centrals, the constant rise in temperature and the pollution of the environment create the need for bioclimatic planning and sustainable development. In this thesis we will examine that by applying cool materials and vegetation to the exteriors of the dormitories, there could be a possibility to reduce the temperature and ensure better thermal comfort conditions. Using the microclimate analysis software Envi-met, ways of improving urban climate conditions through planning techniques and different parametric scenarios are analysed. The results of the study focus on surface temperature, potential air temperature, relative humidity and wind speed, factors that can shape living conditions. In the end, conclusions were made about the interventions that implemented and can help in the environmental upgrading of the study area, and also future research that can be carried out.
